Israeli leader speaks with Putin the day after his visit

Additionally, Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid will fly to Riga, Latvia on Monday to meet US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, the Foreign Ministry said.

While Israel has condemned Russia’s invasion, it has also refrained from taking steps that could irritate Moscow, for fear of undermining military coordination in neighboring Syria. As Western sanctions mounted, Bennett maintained contact with Putin and Zelenskyy, who reportedly asked Bennett to begin mediating between the sides. With his visit to Moscow, he became the only Western leader to meet the Russian president since the start of the war.

Israel is one of the few countries that has good working relations with Russia and Ukraine. He delivered 100 tonnes of humanitarian aid to the country and announced that he would set up a field hospital there. Ukraine is also home to some 200,000 Jews, hundreds of whom have already fled to Israel, and many more are expected.
